The Feast of Saint Celestine V

I chose my confirmation name of 'Celestine' after Pope St. Celestine I, but Pope St. Celestine V was a good pope too.


O God, who hast raised blessed Peter Celestine to the supreme Pontificate, and also taught him to prefer the virtue of humility, mercifully grant that following his example, we may despise the things of this world, and so merit to attain those rewards which Thou hast promised to the humble of heart.


Saint Celestine, pray for us and for Pope Francis.
